Jersey Mike's Subs are the best sub in virtually every market.
At Jersey Mike’s, we offer a sub above – one that’s measured in more than inches or seconds ‘til served. We carefully consider every aspect of what we do – every slice, every sandwich, every store – we provide our customers with sustenance and substance too. Jersey Mike’s Subs is known for the incredible, fresh sandwiches offered all around the country. The stores use only the highest quality ingredients available in the United States. Meats are sliced to order directly in front of you and grilled in store. Subs range in size from the “mini” 5-inch to the large 15-inch, and each order is expertly prepared and wrapped at the authentic East-Coast style deli. Subs ordered “Mike’s Way” include onions, lettuce, tomatoes, vinegar, oil, and spices, but the combinations you can choose from are endless. The store has been offering classic and creative subs since 1956 and now has over 1500 stores throughout the county, including the three Tulsa Hills, Broken Arrow, and Bixby stores owned by Bobby Sanders and Troy Redmon. You shouldn’t give for the accolades, or the back pats, or the tax breaks. At Jersey Mike’s, we think you should give for one reason and one reason only: to give. Our culture of giving at Jersey Mike’s is as much a part of our heritage as oil and vinegar. We believe that making a great sub sandwich and making a difference can be one in the same. Every store we open starts by partnering with a charity in the local community. Because the way we see it, a sub’s job isn’t done at simply tasting good. A sub should do good too. Each March, the old-fashioned store hosts what is known as the “Month of Giving.” Throughout the month, the stores invite you to come in for more than a made to order, high-quality sub. They invite you to come in and help give back to the community. Throughout the entire month, each store accepts donations from customers, staff, and visitors to give to an area non-profit. The last Wednesday of March, 100% of sales go directly to charity. “We don’t donate 100% of profits; we donate 100% of sales” Bobby shares. Every penny spent at the shops will go directly to a local organization on that day. Over the last several years, they average between $12,000 and $15,000 in giving for the day. Nation-wide, the company has raised over $28 million since 2010 alone through it’s “Month of Giving” program. The generosity continues year round, but by having a particular emphasis on the month of March, Bobby and Troy can include their community in the process by focusing on a specific charity and collecting donations throughout the month. Everyone needs a good lunch, and with the three convenient locations, everyone has an opportunity to stop by, enjoy a great sub, make new friends, and contribute to taking care of our Tulsa family.
